It has been 55 years since Martin Luther King Jr delivered his legendary I Have a Dream speech at the March on Washington, calling an end to racism and demanding civil and economic rights. Yet, equality remains a distant dream for many Americans today. This year, to mark Martin Luther King Jr’s 88th birthday, The Atlantic has released a special issue in memory of the visionary civil rights activist. The type-led magazine is a powerful piece of social activism that pays tribute to a man whose words played a key role in advancing equality nationwide. Framed by Dr King’s Three Evils speech where he identifies racism, poverty and war as the world’s main malignancies, the MLK issue is a celebration of one of the most important figures in modern history.
